110070: The Rayleigh test is not valid because the dataset is diametrically bimodal. The output is corrected for better representation of the mean direction.

Description

When data is pointing opposite directions, it is said to be diametrically bimodal. The average angle of this data would be at a right angle of the true mean angle and a poor representation of the data. An angle doubling procedure is applied to result in a more representative output of the mean orientation.

Solution

No further action is necessary. As stated in the message, the output was corrected for better representation of the mean direction.
